Henry Every also known as Avery was an England born pirate. Born in 1653, he was one of those famous pirates who was renowned for not being captured or killed during their era. Henry wasn’t a pirate from the start. He was part of a serving fleet on several Royal Navy Ships. However, with time, by the early 1690’s he became part of slave trading on the West African coast. He used to keep the slaves captivated under harsh conditions on his own ship.
